Pocky and Rocky

Following the release of the Game Boy Advance title Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town on the North American Wii U Virtual Console, as well as Car Battler Joe, Natsume has announced Pocky & Rocky with Becky is locked in for an October release in both North America and Europe.

The action adventure shooter for Game Boy Advance is the third game published under the Pocky & Rocky title, and was originally released in Japan in 2001 as Kiki Kaikai Advance.

In Pocky & Rocky with Becky, players must select from one of three characters, each with their own special attacks, and embark on a quest across seven stages to defeat an evil Hydra Dragon and a army of mythical creatures.

In addition to this announcement, Natsume has also revealed it is planning to release more Game Boy Advance Virtual Console titles in the near future, including the popular Medabots game series.

Let us know in the comments if you would be interested in playing Pocky & Rocky with Becky when it arrives on the Wii U eShop, or even the Medabots titles in the near future.
